Metal Roof

When it comes to metal panels, there are a few different options to choose from. The most common type of panel is the corrugated metal panel, which is made of a series of overlapping metal sheets. These panels are very strong and durable, making them ideal for use in areas that are prone to high winds or heavy rains.

Another popular option is the standing seam metal panel, which is made of two pieces of metal that are joined together at the seams. This type of panel is very strong and provides a lot of protection from the elements. Finally, there is the flat metal panel, which is a single piece of metal that is flat and smooth. These panels are typically used in areas where aesthetics are more important than function.

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use true 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
